After you read David Rothkopf’s (CEO and editor of the FP Group) article you will wonder why such a resignation has not already been announced. Regarding a profanity-filled lecture from Rice, Germany’s national security advisor Christoph Heusgen, according to Mr. Rothkopf, told an American confidante it was the worst meeting of his professional life.
David Rothkopf also tells readers, “More than at any time in the past, Obama’s administration has chosen, in a very deliberate way, to concentrate more power within the White House. Although the NSC has continuously increased in power since it was formed in 1947, under Obama its staff has grown to around 370 people, roughly 10 times the size it was during the early Bush years.”
The U.S. Constitution leads off with “We the People.” Neither major political party is in the slightest sense constitutionally based, though Democrats starting off with the scourge (thanks, Michael Scheuer) that was Woodrow Wilson and continuing through Barack Hussein Obama have been the leading Constitutional violators. And the constitutional revolution, long overdue in America, is going to have to blaze off from the bottom up, from the people. The politicians are not going to put America back on track until such time as the people demand change.
Any American can quickly read in Article. II. Section.2 of the Constitution the limited and clearly enumerated duties of the President. The executive branch of government was intended, by the Founders to be a weak, even part time, office. Think, if you will, shaking hands and kissing babies
The office of President was most certainly not intended to project power in any way shape or form.
